The World Trail Guide Student Notebook CD-ROM is a set of printable pre-formatted templates and outline maps for creating the awesome personal geography student notebooks recommended in the Trail Guide to World Geography.
One of the most common questions that the folks at Geography Matters were asked at conventions and by phone regarding their Trail Guides is: "Where is the student book?" Their answer, "No workbook is needed because your students will create their own geography notebooks while they are learning," led to the next question, "How do we create a notebook?"
Although you can build a geography student notebook using the information included in the Trail Guide to World Geography, many folks prefer additional guidance. If you don't know how to create a student notebook, want more structure, or simply don't have time to figure it out for yourself, this is just what you need to catch the vision!
